Tempo adds Company Cards to its contextual calendar, arming you with factoids and news before you enter a meeting. It’s not a huge feature, but Tempo says it’s a key step toward building your networking graph.
Tempo’s quest to build the industry’s most contextually aware smartphone calendar got a $10 million boost. According to CEO Raj Singh, though, the calendar is just a proxy for its much more ambitious virtual assistant plans.
With a backlog of well over 100,000 registrants, Tempo is far more popular than it ever anticipated. The company has been forced to halt new activations to give its servers some breathing room.
Tempo AI is the latest startup to emerge from research institute SRI International, and like its virtual assistant predecessors Tempo aims to provide contextual understanding to a common app: the calendar.
